How do you enjoy a new level of security for your art? It is as easy as a setting on your Android phone
Scanning an Authentify Art SecureID Tag or Gallery Label is as simple as waving your smartphone within a few inches of the Near Field Communication (NFC) chip itself. Most modern smartphones have NFC Reading enabled by default, but here's a quick guide just in case it's not working for you.
How to Enable NFC Reading on Your Android
If your Android device has NFC, you might need to activate the chip first. Sometimes it comes dormant by default, so let's look into the settings to make sure.
How to find out if your Android phone has Near Field Communication:
1. On your Android device, open the Settings.
2. Select Connected devices.
3. Tap on Connection preferences.
4. You should see NFC options.
5. If the option is there, toggle the Use NFC option on.
